Metformin Hypothermia Causes and Reviews


Cold weather can affect your body in different ways. You can get frostbite, which is an injury to the body that is caused by freezing. Your body can also lose heat faster than you can produce it. That can cause Hypothermia, or abnormally low body temperature. It can make you sleepy, confused, and clumsy. Because it happens gradually and affects your thinking, you may not realize you need help. That makes it especially dangerous. A body temperature below 95° F is a medical emergency and can lead to death if not treated promptly.

Anyone who spends much time outdoors in cold weather can get Hypothermia. You can also get it from being cold and wet, or under cold water for too long. Babies and old people are especially at risk. Babies can get it from sleeping in a cold room.

I have the same suspicion, i took glucophage for few months and had gout. I stoped it for 3 years and never had any symptoms. Last year i started glucophage again and got gout again in couple of months?! I also think there is a connection, probably to certain body types?!

Your diet is also something that will help you process the uric acid
and eliminate it from your body. Low-purine food choices include: green
vegetables, tomatoes, sugar, low-fat milk products, eggs, cheese,
olives, rice, pasta, grains, breads, fruits, chocolate, cereals, and
coffee.
